Sly said stuff too. Oh yea, and some ladies are banning themselves from IBTP in solidarity with lucky, making them all bad people I say.
I'm too slow to get a treasury on etsy. Stupid fast finger people. So like, shannon is going to make up some stuff because bfp wrote stuff. Like there are several groups of fems. Radfems: There's bad lucky and clueless heart whose talk occasioned shame among us radfems. There's twisty who like, isn't against transpeople but has a hard time understanding how cisgendered people can help defend against transphobia and like, so doesn't understand how letting the hate go on too long is like a knife in their heart or something. She should work harder to defend transpeople from prejudice in the new year. There's the woc radfems who are like me, who hasn't worked hard enough to learn about transgender people, so like, I probably suck and there are other ladies who like transgender people and are kinda redfems too. They are of color like me. Hard working white radfem spotted elephant also helped defend transpeople. There's regular woc feminists: Blackamazon and Brownfemipower, who wandered into this to protect the transpeople. There's also lots of transfolk like piny, nexyjo(sorry if mispelled name) little light I believe and holly who came in to protect selves. Regular white fems like JackGoff and Aunt B have also worked valiantly to help protect transpeople.

And then there's some folks who are like...well..*sweatdrop* well, they were called the propornstitution tag team, but then again, let's be nice here. I have decided to call people's names so that one can know truly whether I am right or wrong. Amber, belledame and veronica. In this instance you have worked well to protect the transpeople from the hateful words of Lucky. However, I charge you to not seem like people who have personal axes to grind and to let go of any angers or grudges you may have for the new year. Start fresh all you.
I declare people who think their souls are really werewolves, other animals, cartoon characters, book characters or mythological creatures not to be oppressed. Oh yea, and I do not support women's choices to pretend they are werewolves.

Apparently you're not allowed to invite sex workers to class or something? I planned to offend everyone today by talking about how I have no use for feminity, but I will offend you all later.

Brownfemi has a new post. She tries to be helpful and think about liberating people. Shannon will now commence with the airing of grievances. I think we should center the liberation of transpeople in our remaining discussions, and not put in the center our own personal grievances about how this one lady did this before I was born and so and so isn't my friend anymore and this lady doesn't like my hobby. Of course this probably isn't possible, but hey, it was just a thought.
AngryBrownButch tries to explain transphobia to the masses. Twisty talks about some stuff or other. Shannon hasn't gotten past the stage of transmen- men with different body parts, transwomen- women with different body parts, so you can't look to me to help you be enlightened. Maybe we should read books. Books solve everything. Sheezlebub(sp?) is angry about the too little too late response on twisty's part. Blackamazon went away! and so did brownfemi! Waaa~
Also, JackGoff offended people. That's why I don't drink. I can offend everyone while sober.
Today I woke up and felt guilty. I think it's because I woke up at 11 o clock, but feel free to blame me for whatever.

Friday, December 29, 2006

Twisty weighs in, says she's not against transpeople.
Heart is saying stuff. Piny asks questions about stuff. Shannon's brain is confused, but if you are awake and not sleep like shannon, maybe you have ideas. Another lady has thoughts about transgender people. Hey, spotted elephant is saying stuff. She's my favorite radical feminist. Cept me. Like stigma against mental illness is bad. People don't get help and so their conditions get worse. This is bad! Also, mental illness doesn't make you say bad things about transpeople. I felt pretty nervous and confused lately, but I don't remember calling transpeople bad names or anything.
Yakitate is Great- We Put Malt Vinegar on Everything!

I was amused by this old post. Warning: Cock. And stupidity.

I'm against this Freedom Writers nonsense. Let's boycott.

Thursday, December 28, 2006

Amanda shares with us a fucked up story of anal sex. Shannon decides to tell everyone her ill informed opinions. Now, I think folks have weird ideas about sex nowadays. Instead of the increased acceptance of bondage and anal sex becoming a chance for fun hobbies to be explored by the masses, a lot of people are doing it wrong. Way wrong. Folks think that just because they saw it in a porn video or heard that it was awesome they can just jump off and be raring to go. No no no, folks.

Just because lady wanted to be tied up before doesn't mean she's cool with anal stimulation. Not a package deal here. Even if she had wanted anal stimulation before, she might not want it again. Use good sense here people. Sex isn't some no holds barred playground where dudes can go and do whatever they want.

Yea, one day I'm going to have a post that makes sense. But uh..bdsm snark poly snark and quantum fetish mechanics. I hope this offering of links will make everyone happy.

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

On CNN, Tim Wise, Al Sharpton and some other guy tried to say that racism is bad. But Paula Zahn and most white people ever didn't listen! Dad says when we're all rich, we can not give the white people jobs and so there.

Tuesday, December 26, 2006

I feel horribly irritable. So I looked at pictures of plush tampons. Also, I feel oddly compelled to help with this sending Eid cards to detainees thing. I still think I have like phantom PMS. Does anyone know if Happy Feminist is alright also?

Also, a radical feminist talks about transfolk.
With more stuff, here is Nine Pearls. This is a perfect example of what I mean by we don't agree about what power is. To me, MSM level is like Oprah magazine or the nightly news or even To me, the cultural dictates we imbibe with our mother's milk(so to speak) are way more powerful than a lady shooting her mouth off. Also, what's off limits is different. To me, blowjobs aren't off limits. I'm fully aware that blowjobs are going to be part of the expected sexual reportore(sp?) til I die, much to the chargin of people with jaw problems. What can one woman that maybe 10 thousand people read say to that?

It's not ingrained into our culture that a woman's got the right to say, hey, guess what? blowjobs are gross, and I don't like them. Heck, I think they might be oppressive too! Nope. Women got to toe the line there.
Hey! Twisty emailed me:

to me

Thanks, Shannon. I had no idea it had gotten so insane; I quit reading
that thread days ago, which was clearly a mistake. But I have resumed
monitoring it and will nuke anything further that gets too wack.

I learned an important lesson. If someone on a big blog is scaring the children and horses, email the maintainer.
Aunt B also has interesting thoughts. I did feel sort of uncomfortable about blaming Twisty herself because some of her commenters are ****s. That's why I suggested emailing her and telling her that the transhate was making everyone uncomfortable and angry. Also, there's something about how we view power in there. Hey! This is a good point to pick up what I was going to say earlier.

Now, we mostly have a broad consensus that her commenters have crossed the line with the transhate and all that. But an issue that leads to what I call feminist concern trolling is that nobody can figure out whether the powers are out of balance and what is the source of the out of balance powers is. Are evil feminists, radical or not, ruining the lives of women? Is it the fault of men who benefit from male privilege while we have to go around washing plates all the time? Is it because we don't read the Bible enough?! Yea, we're never going to agree whether we all have equal power or whether some people have more power than others.
I suggested we have an angry email campaign at brownfemi's place. Here is the email:
taco at iblamethepatriarchy dot com Her commenters have gotten out of hand with the transhating comments, and I think we should tell her to reign it in- perhaps ban the commenters or tell everyone that it's not right to hate transpeople. Now now, let's not be too rigid about our gender categories here- transwomen are not invading our space as women. There's room for different kinds of women, etc. I'm not an expert on transpolitics, but now let's not hate on them.

Hey! I remembered that I was still co opting the term radical feminist! Therefore, now I declare a unilaterial rule change. Being picky about who is a woman is oppressing all women. We don't want women who are feminine or hetro or white to be declared the only women, so let's not be so picky about people's genitalia. It's near the start of a new year you know.

Fatten up the white girl is so much fun! We have red velvet cake! I have to go and play another round!
Consumer Goods! I got an ipod speaker thing! and Civilization 4 (with expansion pack! thank you guy I annoy!) and so I am nearly wetting myself with happiness. I also got a Jem and the Holograms shirt(my brother knows I was too young to remember that show!) and 3 books- Mirror Mirror, Ugly Stepsister, and Persuasion. I can't wait til we give the presents to the children too! *super pumped* Heckle and Jeckle may not be getting anything as that would be celebrating Christmas and making God mad, but the other kids are getting tons of stuff!

Sunday, December 24, 2006

Hey- people are being locked up in jail for ever for no good reason at all. Also, Dawn Eden is fucking nuts. Now- why I am not a nicey nice feminist:

1) Personality- It almost physically hurts for me to be nice to anyone. Ever.

2)Theory of Change- Either you want to change or you don't. You can't make somebody want to be a decent human being.

3)Theory of Politics and Life- I think we're influenced by a whole lot more things than we think we are- in fact, the love of pink ponies in girls is not caused by XX chromosomes- but is in fact caused by other factors. I am giving my little girl cousin a purple pony toy. The horrid male twins, Heckle and Jeckle, have a whole lot of trucks and shit. Also, even at the age of 2 or so, they can in fact understand what is said by adults and on TV!

But I also think we have a lot more power to change things than other people think we do. I don't think just begging the folks in power to please let us have rights, look, we did almost everything you wanted us to is the only path to change. We can also work hard within ourselves to encourage having self esteem, defining power in terms of what you can do for yourself and have traits you have rather than currying the favor of a powerful person, and work really hard to fill needs in our community and around the world.

4)My theory of reality: No large group of people will ever agree on what is ok to make fun of and what isn't. Now, there may be broad consensuses- like it's not cool to say c*nt or the n word, but those are nuclear bombs. I mean the smaller artillery in the war of words. Now, I may think calling a lady a stupid moo for walking down the street is horrible, and how can you say that, but don't really care if you call Rosie O'Donnell a bitch.

I don't think we can all agree on which groups are off limits to snark? Other feminists? Women as a whole?(pretty hard for me, because Dawn Eden exists and she's a woman)? And how would we define woman anyway? Anyone who has ever been one? Anyone with XX chromosomes? Anyone who presents in a feminine manner? Yea, I can see that getting real messy real soon.

So I can't really scold anyone to be snark free, or talk about how snark is ruining the movement, as my sacred cows aren't other people's sacred cows.

After Christmas, part 2- why being a feminist concern troll sucks will be out.
Needed: Good Kitchen Helper- Knows How To Cook. Perky and Upbeat to Help Middle Aged Woman Who Has Scalded Her Hand in Cooking Christmas Eve Dinner. Please Contact Daughter With References at 901-555-5555.
Merry Christmas Eve to all Christians and people who celebrate secular Christmas. I don't like people being happy. Therefore I'd like to pass along some suffering. In the Daily Mail, this guy decides to say that the murder of prostitutes is no big deal, as it's not like they are winning the Nobel Peace Prize. This has very bad implications for the rest of us, as I never even help mom cook for the holidays, let alone curing cancer. But this guy is a bastard in my eyes. Who wants someone's sister, mother, daughter or friend to die just because they had an odd choice of profession? So the existence of douchebags like this are my anti Christmas gift to all of you.

Saturday, December 23, 2006

Because snarky blog titles are the enemy of feminism- not say- patriarchy or gendered oppression or anything! Also bothering me is the idea in the comments that it's bad to react to being raped with anger, snark, and political activism but it's perfectly ok and reasonable for men to be like OMG, A BLOG TITLE I DON'T LIKE! I MUST BE AGAINST EQUALITY FOR WOMEN NOW!!!

That's a double standard I often see. Men and anti feminists are entitled to any action or reaction they see fit, but feminists must tiptoe around scared to have any ideas or actions because what if the menz don't like it? I don't see conservatives afraid to let the fact that they think soy makes you gay or that Muslims all want to kill us in our sleep make them afraid to tell everyone their crazy ass mess. Heck, on national TV programs, they are unafraid to ask Muslims about whether they really are friends of America.

But on blogs that like two people read, we're supposed to be tiptoeing around, because you know, women getting fed up and deciding to change things doesn't work. Only begging people who could care less about our freedom has a chance of working. Balderdash, I say.

Ovaries out, women!* And kick some tail!

*Men are also allowed to kick ass for feminism, but it's rarely men being told that they are too scary for having an opinion.

Stupid Free is filled with stupidity- mostly because this girl insists on talking about how other women have loose, droopy vaginas. Now, being tight fucking blows. I used to be ultra tight up in there and it was terrible! If you're loose and floppy, at least you can tighten things up with a few kegals!
Predictions For the Future:

1)Our internal organs will be declared ugly and unacceptable until we 'groom' them.

2)The children of the parents I saw standing in the line for a Wii today will have life long friendships.

3)My family will explode with drama

4)The Wii will dominate over the PS3.

5)The crafts explosion will continue to mature.

6)White people will bring old forms of racism back into fashion.

7)There will be a backlash against enforced femininity by feminists

8)Manga will continue to be a huge huge market

9)Global warming will fuck up our economy.

10)Webcomics Nation Free will be a force to be reckoned with.
Aunt B talks about empowerful women in the comments to her post. I think the Pussycat Dolls are a tool of the patriarchy. Instead of simply doing burlesque, where only adults go and ogle the bodies of women, they spread their terrible lyrics where children can hear them. For example Don't Cha is a horrible song- the shitty hook is as follows:

Dont cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me
Dont cha wish your girlfriend was a freak like me
Dont cha, dont cha
Dont cha wish your girlfriend was raw like me
Dont cha wish your girlfriend was fun like me
Dont cha, dont cha

Instead of sexual pleasure being centered as something that a woman does for herself, it's being used as a way to compete with another woman. Also, sexual kinkiness here is seen as a method of competiting with other women. That's empowerfulness being sold to our kids here. Because seriously, what adult would listen to this fucking pap?

I think that my next post will be predictions about the future!

Black tech discussion on blackfolk.

Hey, a male attention whore picture.(NSFW: male nudity from the back) Attention whores are most often female, as men are socialized to get attention by being giant assholes, and women are socialized to get attention by showing their body parts to people.
Look! It's that banker for the poor foundation site! Also the dress a day lady recommends this changing the present website.

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

You might want to submit programming suggestions for wiscon, the feminist sci fi and fantasy convention?

Oh yea, and aunt B doesn't realize the futility of talking to white people about race. She also breaks the taboo against feeling bad I think. Yesterday I felt bad about speeding. I vowed never to speed again. Nothing bad happened as a result.

Societal influence: I saw that picture and instantly I was singing I'd like to buy the world a Coke... That ad aired before I was born.

Also, patriarchy is starving children.
Random internet people: interview tips?! Also, blackamazon needs money Nubian went away and shannon is sad. I wanna be hot and good at blogging too!
LJ is dramalicious, with dot race snark being suspended. We all blame white ass bitches. My primary journal is this blog, so I am posting evidence of a white ass bitch sucking here:

White people, this sort of behavior is not to be supported. Don't do it, and tell your friends not to do it as well. I don't care what folks say- calling folks the n word and refering to lynchings continues to be not ok behavior.

Tuesday, December 19, 2006

On metaquotes, a perfectly good thread has turned into a white person embarrassing humanity. Yes, a white person so embarrassing that the shame isn't just confined to white people- this is so bad that humanity is like OH SNAP! I'm not like this person! Once I made a white man promise not to pull me into any mess he did. White people, now while I try to say hi to you, and act friendly, I have nothing to do with the fact that you burned a cross in somebody's lawn, think it's ok to say the n word or think that racism doesn't exist. So if you knew me slightly when I was 5 or said hello to me at my job/school/where ever once, this does not give me responsibility for your actions forever and ever,amen,ok?

Hey, you should give Brownfemi money! She's not going to use it for a Wii like I'm going to use your money! Ok, I also use your money to support local resturants by eating at them, support small business people by buying expensive clothing and occasionally I do 'tithe'. You can piss off white people by giving money to the United Negro College Fund as well. If any white people are on your naughty list, give money to the UNCF in their name.

Inspired by Pandagon: The College Woman's Heteronormative Guide to Fucking, Sucking, and Dating:

1)Have some self esteem. Never let some guy try to sweet talk you into having sex without a condom. Condomless sex can make a mere healthy sowing of the oats into medical bills and craziness. Don't do it! Also, you don't have to go for the first guy who comes along- if he's a jerk, dump him.

2)Signs of being a jerk: These aren't all of them, but these are some good signs. 1)He tries to shame you into doing stuff. If all the other girls do it, he can get one of them to. 2)He complains about your body. If he thinks you're too fat, too thin, or too hairy, he can go wank off to pictures of the perfect woman. Don't give him any. 3)He thinks that smacking you around is a good pastime. 4)He's always sleeping with dead drunk women. 5)Every single person he's been in a relationship with in the past is a crazy b*tch or a liar.

2)Know what you want. Do you just want meaningless sex or do you want a real relationship? Trying to get a guy who just wants a few thrills into a real relationship or trying to get the sort of guy who wants a real relationship just to give you the sausage is a recipe for disaster.

3)Good sense is imperative: Always know where you can get emergency contraception, always carry a condom, and it's best to use two forms of birth control, with one being a condom to prevent disease. Also, don't get super drunk. Never funnel alcohol, ladies. You could die. Also on that health tip, maybe you want to look into the cervical cancer vaccine?

4)Never date a rapist: If he's accused of date rape, stay clear! You may hear the girl is a slut, blah blah, but it's a red flag- either he is a rapist or else well..let's just say that it's likely he's a rapist, ok?

5)Dump that MF-er already- You don't have to put up with being yelled at, being stood up, having a guy flirt with tons of other chicks, guys who rate your blowjobs, or whatever. Dump him.

6)You don't have to do anything but stay (insert your skin color here) and die: If you're feeling kinda ehhh about something but think you have to do it because of other people, say fuck that! I don't have to do shit!

7)Your most important task is to work on you. Don't be babysitting some man or chasing after some player. Work on yourself instead.

Extra tips: Don't move to a strange city with a guy you've only met once or twice or have known for less than 2 years. Just don't do it!
It seems that somebody doesn't understand the concept of male privilege. Also, a nice lady delux vivens I think posted a link to this educational essay on the other thread.

WAAAH! The Bible hates Christmas!
Gay porn drawings. Full of the hate for white folks now- I would like all of you to suffer as much as I did. Please read the thread of pain. Oh yea, and I donated to the United Negro College Fund. Take that, whiners! Also, a post from I dreamed it was, who was either elected blackfolks' token whitey or was runner up about the kerfuffle:

It's all so insulting to one's intelligence.

Clearly you haven't considered, since you're not as smart as me (pick one):

A) Race is a social construct, therefore racism does not exist! DUR!!!

B) Racism might work differently in different countries, therefore white people are not TEH RACIST ONES!!!11

C) Everybody's a little bit racist, and human beings love to hate each other, therefore if you eliminate racism, BIG TOED PEOPLE WILL BE SENT TO CONCENTRATION CAMPS!!!1

D) The aim of anti-racism is clearly to make white people feel bad!!!!! Because you think will eliminate racism somehow!!!11 So you're stupid!!! No, YOU!11


F) It's just an academic definition, therefore it's probably inapplicable to daily life. Because I say so. ALL HAIL!!11!

G) All of the above.

I'm taking a nap.

The post office is insane lately. Ok, I went on an unprecidented Saturday post office trip, and the line was out the door and I couldn't get parking. Thank goodness for buying postage online, or I'd still be there.

Guy tries to offend people on amazon boards.
I need to ask people on the internet something. There was a song about I don't what do you do when you're all used up and all that, it had a folk sound to it, and I think it was about unions or something. Sounded really old. Any ideas?

Thursday, December 14, 2006

Dave Chapelle(sp?) made humor of a fundemental truth- black people are afraid of the police. It's very hard for me to understand that white people aren't afraid of the police. Like the white lady of doom from school- she suggested that parents call in the police if their kid wouldn't go to school. I gave her a funny look, since I feel that many of the parents are kinda scared of the police. I'm sort of scared of the police too. Like I'd call them in if I was sure someone was committing a crime against me, but for cases on the edge there, I'd be sort of reluctant. But I have an unruly child? Dang, I wouldn't want the child to be dead, just a bit nervous. I think I'm going to beat the kid's ass myself, if that's OK.

Why is the n word bleeped out but not the s word?

Wednesday, December 13, 2006

Now white people are lying about what anti racist means. Oh no! 7%! That certainly is too high! Gotta use some racist Christmas carols to make sure those blacks don't dare get an education and make something of themselves! Of course, if we're poor and uneducated, we're bad people too. Man, it's time for me to buy some alcoholic egg nog! Give to the United Negro College Fund or the National Society of Black Engineers - it pisses off white people.
I am cocooning, and may go to bed. The pleasureseeker writes a long post about debt and women. I don't have credit cards, although I'm down to my last $600 due to overspending.

Moore Tech teaches men to keep America running? No no no, Moore Tech! Women can also fix air conditioning units and computers! There's nothing that makes women incapable of going after a technical education.
Poll shows that 25% of whites are liars. Also, Mama fights back against pro ana and pro mia bullshit. Back in Skinny Jeans also speaks out.
Today both me and my dad got seperate expensive gifts. I got a pair of mohop low heels but I forgot what I was supposed to do in exchange? Was I supposed to blog about them? Show a picture with my feet in them? Anyway I'm too embarrassed to ask what I was supposed to do. Also, my dad got an ipod nano. You should study hard at math and science kiddies, so that the Fed Ex of your day can give you an Ipod Nano of your day.
More about the hoo ha. How come men's bodies are like considered automatically clean and how come men like their bodies hairy? Also, someone points out that feminism is about equality not choice. Thank goodness somebody finally figured out feminism 101.

Oh yea, and us female gamers need to be beautiful thanks to Pandagon commentor shelly:

Shelley Dec 12th, 2006 at 10:33 am

Yeah, I have to echo PonyGirl. I’ve been a lifelong gamer (beginning with the D&D boardgame in 3rd grade), and it’s an amazing release to use your computer to kill stuff in various ways. There’s a great online community so that one is not isolated, and there’s the spurts of blood when I’m using my World of Warcraft (or, previously Everquest, Star Wars Galaxies, Eve, and Earth and Beyond) character to slice and dice. That’s not to say I haven’t been sucked in by the various card & PC games that aren’t necessarily multiplayer. Civ Rawks. (And you can play with others if you choose.)
When girls game, we don’t think about anything but the GAME. We don’t need for G4 or anyone else to pound us with images of stereotypical bimbos just because they don’t realize their market includes beautiful YET ALSO highly inventive and intelligent women versus testosterone-laden frat boys (who SUCK at gaming, by the way.)
Screw G4 and the anti-women-as-people sentiment. I’ll keep on doing what I’ve always done, which is to game with a style that a man could never achieve, and I won’t support anyone who isn’t smart enough to cater to me as well as the unwashed, gaming, mountain-dew drinking, male demographic G4 seems to prefer.

Because girl gamers- we're all hot! No, we're not. We're all women, and many of us don't live up to beauty standards. Also, many female gamers are kids as well. Seriously, what does beauty have to do with the price of tea in China?

Monday, December 11, 2006

Oh yea, and naturally skinny people, shut the fuck up. I'm naturally on the thin side, although a bit hippy, and I don't attention whore on the internet about how horrible it is that they are banning models that look like they are going to drop dead at any minute. Naturally thin people don't look sick! Our bones aren't poking out and there's not a sort of sickly wan cast to our features. Oh hell naw, the models actually are dropping dead. OK folks, regulations are in order!!!

Also, this reminded me of how I was reading Decades of Fashion and saw Jane Mansfield flashing her bra and was like hey! it's the equvalent of the Britney crotch shot for the 50s! But yea, so not classy. Also my mom says floozy- she said my socks(pictured here) are for fast floozies.
Ebay Drama: Apparently $15 dollars for shipping is rape!!!! not to mention fat housewives don't have feelings. *shakes head*

Also, sex worker stabs john in condom fight. I say the john is at fault here. You don't slap a woman.
The best icon ever:

Also, I don't support women's choices to eat only 1000 calories a day and exercise for an hour. Because seriously, how will you get the energy to exercise while eating that little? Just switch out less healthy foods for more healthy foods and get some exercise. You might not end up OMG thin! but you'll be healthier, and hopefully get enough self esteem to dump that asshole boyfriend.

Freezer's Harvest Moon Icon:

I think I should have a recurring feature: I don't support women's choices. This time it's shut up, nobody cares about your moon time. When you save menstural blood in a jar, bacteria will grow in it and yes, it'll start to smell. Duh.

LJ Abuse is full of crap.
Hey, there's booju snark. Increased poverty rates are occuring. This is why this holiday season you need to give to charity.

There's this huge discussion about Jews and Israel at Brownfemi's. I remembered that I didn't post this Outlook I stumbled on. It had Israeli and Palestian teenagers arguing. Well, here it is.
Oh yeah in Cairo people are declaring FGM as unIslamic. Note that the thread doesn't have any bullshit about respecting women's choices to have their genitals sewn up. Oh and ho ho ho, now B has commenters being like OMG, did you say people who get labiaplasties can't call themselves feminists? LOL, because the sort of woman who would have surgery on their vagina to please a man totally has as their only other issue whether Aunt B thinks they are feminists! Call the law- I think bleaching your god damn anus is dumb too.

An amusing Youtube video (not safe for work) Watch your small kids! My little 9 year old cousin can watch MTV2 on the net- youtube can't be far behind!

Also, a public dot race snark post for your edification.

Aunt B is like "Yea, labiaplasty...this is where I draw the line". Oh yea, and according to some commenters there, she's the real oppressor for not believing in women's choices. Because merely having a va jay jay(ok, some women don't, but my mind is weak) makes your choices always good and above criticism. The strange thing is that I never see this sort of reasoning applied to women of color. B talks about FGM and wonders what's the difference between the two practices.

I think the difference is that these folks haven't grown up where FGM was the accepted practice. If they had, they'd be talking about how FGM makes a woman cleaner, and how they just like the look of their vaginas without a clit and how come you can't respect their choices,etc. But when it's someone else's culture, it's easy to say "that's messed up" because you're looking from the outside in. There's also a bit in the mix about the cultural idea we have in the US that we must go and save the African women from their oppressive men, but that American women are totally free and liberated.
Black folks harvest:

The one strike policy is announced.

White people think the n word isn't hate speech. Oh yea, the post is locked, but magentathompson apparently was banned for photoshopping some picture of this trashy ass bitch. That's why any real person of color knows that anyone can be racist shit is bullshit. White people can call us racial slurs for six months without stop, and nobody cares. But make some dumbass white bitch cry and it's all OMG. OK, I'm implementing a new rule here. Any white ass bitch who starts crying about how someone told her she wasn't a special snowflake? Well, all be advised that I don't fucking care. Shut your mouth and stop whining. If you're a chronological adult, you will be treated that way, white women.

Blacks have pride in their strength and survival.

Gay white men let down the cause by performing in blackface.

papertigers- don't steal her icons :D

cumaesybil(sp?) ditto
Bizarre cultural misunderstandings- I have no idea why feeling guilty or feeling shame is taboo in white culture. Chris Clarke makes a OK post sort of marred by the O guilt and geekery stuff that you often hear. A common cant among white people is that if a white person starts to show empathy for people of color they are suffering from 'white guilt'. I don't get what's so bad about guilt? If you feel guilty, you can do better and improve. How is assuming that whatever you are doing now is the right thing going to improve anything? One thing I've never liked about the right is that you're either born with worth(rich, white, a man) or you're born without worth. There's nothing you can really do to improve. If you hew only to the dictates of those with power and give up any chance of having self respect, you may get some shadow of conditional respect although they are calling you the n word and the c word behind your back.

But with liberalism, anyone can improve if they do the right thing. If I stop making excuses for why I am special and the rules of reality don't apply to me, I can make a real change in my life and the lives of others. Also, I'm confused about what's so bad about shame? I feel ashamed if I don't 'tithe'(give 10% to charity), but that means that I have something that spurs me to do better and be a better person. To me, guilt is what you feel if you do not do your responsibility to yourself, and shame is what you feel when you don't do your responsibility to others. If someone can shame you, the truth is maybe you in yourself feel that you have not done what you need to do.

Then again, why am I even talking? These are the same people who think bigotry is a black single mom getting a scholarship.

I am on your blogs destorying your minds! First, here's the worst wank ever. Second, I had a Southernania sighting today! I saw a truck with hunting camo on the bottom edge, like a border. It was amazing, like the time I found out that the racistmobile- I mean the guy actually had a confederate flag on one of those things you put football flags on, and confederate flag bumperstickers, that is why it is called that, had a 'in case of rapture, this will be unmanned' tag on the rear view mirror. I had another sighting of oddness, but I'm not sure if it's Southerania. In the sort of paint you use to write things like "Happy Birthday!" or "Seniors Rule!" on your car windshield, this guy had instead that abstinence only educaiton was built on fear or something.

The method of communication was totally Southernania, but I don't know about the message. Hmm...

Also, I missed this wank on girl gamer.
Ok, I was flipping through the carnival of feminists and I saw a post by Nine Pearls and I just had to respond! Sorry for the porn post.

Yes, I think middle aged women are really out of touch as far as sexual expectations are. They think that we actually suffer from sexual repression! Ha ha ha. Back in my college days(I graduated in May), we had fuck buddies(yea, many girls are relegated to fuck buddies) rating girl's blowjobs, guys complaining about women with hairy crotches, frat boys video taping girls, guys complaining if you had sense enough to not want to fuck within the first week of meeting, disrespectful guys who think that a girl's got a death wish and wants to fuck condomless, and tons of hookup culture. When I tivo Soul Food, at 1 am, the end is cut off by dumbass Girls Gone Wild commercials. If this is sexual 'liberation', I want out! But the problem is that you can't opt out. There's no get out of patriarchy free card, no magical boundary you can go into where you don't have to deal with the culture.
Yea, I think these are the most racist books I've seen in a long ass time. Because calling Native Americans 'savages' is totally hawt! When there's a Snowflake/Cracka series of romance novels, then we'll talk white people...

Two questions: I thought I got an email about hosting costs and bandwidth and bitch lab and bitch lab's blog is down- a coincidence? Also, my email to her bounced.

Second, why do they put the Victoria's Secret fashion show on TV?

In other news, white feminist Echinde is worried about school desegregation. I'm pretty depressed about the whole thing actually.

.......on the news, I think I saw Snoop Dogg captioned as 'concerned rapper'. The world is coming to an end?
Rachel uses the fun "What comments are from white supremacist sites and what comments are from normal white folks" game, which was also used in White Reign I believe. Yea, this sort of mess is why I think that I will wait til the schools in the United States are fully integrated to worry about 'racism' against whites.
A email I got:

I am responding to your message of concern regarding the arrest of a
UCLA student at Powell Library and the use of a taser by the University
of California Police Department. Rest assured this matter has the close
attention of Acting Chancellor Norman Abrams and UCPD Chief Karl Ross.
They have decided to move forward with an independent review. The
following link provides further information including statements by
Chancellor Abrams and Chief Ross:

The safety and treatment of students are of the utmost importance to
UCLA. As updated information becomes available, we will post it at, in the "News & Notices" section of the Web site.

I'm full of hate for pro ana sites.

On a happier note- from 10 am to 7 pm on December 6th, get free emergency contraception from the Planned Parenthood on 1407 Union Avenue(Memphis area).

Also, I'm full of hate for 'child model' sites and glad the assholes got busted. Also, a sicko who thinks it's ok to coerce 13 year olds into explict photos was nabbed.

In the Soul Food on today, there is a Muslim woman owning a factory employing many other Muslim women. Also Maxiane(sp?) got promoted at the domestic violence shelter. Man, I wish there were DVDs for more than one season of Soul Food. Here's a message from a BET board:

hello soulfood fans: we need to take action if we want paramount to release the remaining seasons of soulfood. it's been over 6 years since season one released on dvd. we the fans want seasons 2, 3, 4, & 5 on dvd. so, here is what i need you all to do, email and call paramount studio and demand that they release all the seasons of soulfood. paramount studio phone: 323-956-4488 and 323-956-5000 email: if you don't get an answer, leave a detailed message. after, they receive enough messages, they will know that we are serious. much do you bet me that someone on this thread starts whining that Amanda called her not a feminist? I think someone should have to pay me a hundred bucks if the original author of that bizarre screed comes in and starts whining.

Remember to support black TV series and black movies that aren't all about shucking and jiving.
Benny Hinn seeks to rip people off by asking them to buy him an airplane. If you want to help others, why not give to a worthy charity? Modest Needs, Planned Parenthood(they also do prenatal care), Kiva, Heifer International, Doctors Without Borders, America's Second Harvest* and more help other people.

Hey, yesterday at a funeral, Pastor Brooks said that people should feed the poor and put clothes on the backs of the needy. So a religious guy said you should give your money to the poor. So don't give money to rip off artists who are only enjoying earthly things- give it to those who need it.

*charities like these and more at the network for good! Heck, give to more than one at one time.

Sunday, December 03, 2006

White feminist Amanda writes a long post to explain that you shouldn't use c*nt, because apparently some people are so dumb they will make any excuse to say c*nt.
There is some great wank on the ebay boards today. Summary: In one thread a guy asked why he is not making sales. Other sellers say "maybe it's your poor feedback" or allude to factors such as an oversaturated marketplace. This guy starts another thread complaining about how we're OMG not Christians! thus providing the lulz for today.

People are shocked that a small brown girl is reciting a speech on video tape. I hope they aren't shocked when small children pretend to be 'sinners' and then get redeemed by other children pretending to be 'angels' or 'preachers'.

I seem to have a slight fever. Hey, here's one dress I'm not getting. Also, the laws are updated.
My brain is filled with fog, my head hurts and I feel like I'm going to puke. Also I feel dizzy. Yes, I can't even pull it together to find the worst example of counseling in the entire world, and write my impressions.

It's nice to see the new opportunities for black men in the world of fake news.
About 1400, which is probably way too short, but I think I'm at a stopping point and should start editing now.
Tekanji continues to write, and I continue to comment. In bold, as usual, is quotes.

Much like being the Traditionally Geeky Female Gamer is a double-edged sword — you get cred as being “one of the boys”, but in a way that entails the rejection of the feminine — so too is the Girly-Girl Gamer. In this case, it hinges on how the feminine is seen to be included into the gaming community.

I'm not seeing the downside to rejecting the feminine, which in esscence is denying yourself to become only the sum of your looks instead of what you do. If I wanted to be a pretty decoration to get some man hot, I'd do that, Not all woman want to be seen as objects. Many want to be seen as subjects. If a woman wants to be seen as an object, fine, but it's not a universal desire of women.

While often praised to their faces, in other areas of the gaming community women who post their pictures get labelled “attention whores” and get told that they are one of the reasons why female gamers don’t get taken seriously.

That is because that sort of thing does make it hard to take anyone seriously. Women are often told that behavior that is in esscence, self defeating, is what they should do- put the priority on looks over smarts, think that a man can/should take care of you, avoid developing one's self as a person because that's not feminine. The work for feminists to do is for us to recognize when the societal message really is bollox.

I don’t want to spend too much time on this subject, as I think it’s better suited for the next part of my series, but suffice it to say, “fakers” are classified as women, usually models, who are faking their interest/knowledge in gaming to get attention/money/whatever. These are the bottom of the barrel and are considered not to have any gamer cred whatsoever. It’s also a classification based solely on these hypothetical women’s looks; it is contingent on the perception that these women entered the gaming community/industry in order to profit off their appearance.

Actually, it's more behavior than looks. If a hot girl says she's a girl gamer and actually shuts up and plays games- no one thinks they are a faker. But if they are constantly talking about how hot they are, and licking PSPs and going on- of course the perception is going to be that they are well, attention whores.

Seriously, what sensible adult person would go and lick an electronic device and then wonder why people don't take them seriously? The problem is that these women have bought into the idea that their looks are the most important thing about them, and that this sort of behavior will make others think well of them, when the obvious reality is that people are a bit more marketing savvy nowadays. So when they see obvious plants like the Frag Dolls or booth babes or women who get columns at IGN not because of any skill they may have but because they are so hot, they are going to raise an eyebrow to women who promote themselves as girl gamers. This of course reflects badly on women who actually do like games, and actually do take more time playing games than posing in our underwear.

I read the LJ community girl gamers. Many of the women posting there could in fact be very hot. Model hot. But the majority know that nobody cares if they wear lipstick to match their DS's(there are pink DS's and I want one) or whether they wear merry widows to game in and confine their posting to actual games and game related talk because it's a gaming community. There are in fact many other communities where if these women want to get attention for their looks, they can be validated in the way they desire.

Just leave my hobby out of it. Just be a model or a sex worker, and stop trying to promote yourself using my hobby,ok?

ETA: I hate this shitty parody commerical.
A crappy day with only 1000 words written. It'll turn cold tonight and adding to the bleakness is that Britney's cooter is now an image macro. Even worse than that, I'm actually going to wear a sweat shirt and sweat pants in public. This is how horrible it is today. Now off to pop vitamins and alieve.

Lots of nervous posting today. Wank about Muslims swearing on Korans and Pandagon makes an appearance at otf wank. I may have been hallucinating, but I thought that maybe the regional Planned Parenthood in Memphis is giving out free AIDs tests on Dec 1. And I thought there was something about Orange Mound and community centers and free AIDs tests as well. Yea, so that could be happening. Possibly.
1575 and done, but very unhappy about it. I forgot what I was going to write in this post.

Well, now it's a free post. Tekanji wrote a post about girl gamers. Girly girl gamers confuse me. Saying I game, and I'm hot! seems to me like me saying I'm a community agency psychology student and I eat tortilla chips!. And we care because? It seems like instead of just playing games for the love of it, they are playing into the stereotype that women don't have real hobbies or likes or dislikes, but instead do everything they do as a sort of advertising campaign for a man or to get cash. I'm not saying people who are like that are bad people- but it's really hard to take a woman seriously as a gamer or even as an adult when she devotes more time to talking about how she is totally hot! than actually talking about playing games. If you think I'm too mean, regender. How do you think a man who always posted about how he plays video games, but is hot and has a big cock and had a website promoting himself as a 'guy gamer', with little information about games, but much about how attractive he was would be taken seriously?

The next time on Shannon's judgemental hour- we'll be talking about how women are often duped into believing that behavior that no sensible person would consider adult behavior is somehow feminine and attractive.
1,275 words. Is it dick day on salon or something? What the fuck is this for example? I'm not alone in thinking the author is kinda a douche.
There's a campaign against violence against women called Take Back the Tech. There are good ideas there. I like to use graphics software to make stickers. Bloggers around the world use their blogs to document abuses and organize actions in the real world. Women use emails to complain about cyberstalking, harrassment and offensive messages about the real worth of a woman on the internet. Women draw webcomics against sexual abuse, harrassment and gendered violence.

Hahaha, the breast feeding in public makes me just like Rosa Parks lady got a mention on otfwank. White women, we're glad that your baby is getting good nutrition. We just don't think that braving a few dirty looks is heroic.
Hey, if you're in NY, maybe you should go and protest in front of the 6th precicnt(sp?) tomorrow.

Also, 3003 words so far. It's nearly done. I decided to kick back after printing. But then this guy IM'd me and was like look at this! and so I looked. Being old fashioned, I recommend wearing panties in public. It's sad that nowadays seeing a celebrity's vagina has become common place and boring. I may have become Jonathan Frazen, but I'm not joking. I'm really sad!

Monday, November 27, 2006

Only 2,219 words. ;_; Soon I'll write "the difference between oppression and being mean". While I'm here- hahahahahaha, breast feeding like Rosa Parks. Yea, I can't take that seriously.
People are collecting donations for the Six Nations.

I'm wondering why people who barely have an idea of what is going on on the other side of the city, let alone the other side of the nation are telling people on the other side of the globe what help they need to ask for. (see the original post)

Sunday, November 26, 2006

1977 words well short of my goal of 2300 words.

Twisty posts again. For the love of god, could you white women get secure about your choice of fucking shoes? Seriously, if you're comfortable with your choice of footwear, someone else not liking it doesn't matter.

Only 310 words into my counselor profile! I'm supposed to have 1250 or so! Also rubber sidewalks. Some more hilarity: *snerk* a watch from Girls Next Door. In other disturbing items, I am on a yahoo list devoted to selling off your old items, and one lady was selling an old child pageant dress. I was like noooo!

An abortion ban in Georgia? WTF? Maybe you should all donate to the Georgians for Choice who I am sure will be all over this.

Not related: white science guy PZ Meyers is sick of all this tasering.
An advertisement: During this weekend, you may be buying a lot of stuff you don't need. Let me assist you in doing that. My ebay store has plenty of items you don't need for everyone on your list! And best of all, they aren't too expensive, so you won't have to go into massive credit card debt! I'm saving up for A)a Wii B)books for next semester*

*they require us to read them, really!

OMG! Cooking Mama for the Wii! In real life, the pecan pie won't gel, but I don't eat it anyway. I slept in (til 7 am) and so I didn't make the sweet potato pie this Thanksgiving.

ETA: I'm drinking chai style tea. Twisty is busy blaming the colonialist white supremacist patriarchy, and I'm glad she mentioned sweet potato pie, the true type of pie to eat, instead of that heathen pumpkin pie. Only white people eat that nasty ass green bean casserole I'd like to say. We are having sweet potato casserole(the kind w/ nuts on top,etc) for the next few weeks, and we had greens(but my grandma can't cook so she put okra in the middle of the greens mom worked so hard to make!), anyway, all much better than some green bean casserole. I really hate pecan pie, even though it is traditonal. I didn't have any turkey today, just ham, because my grandma cooked a turkey mom gave her and I totally don't trust grandma's turkey.

Another Edit: Now in food related coma. Send postcards to political prisoners,please.
Jurimprudence for feminism.

First laws by others:

Auguste’s Law:

[Due to the completely understandable strong feelings involved], As any blog discussion about weight continues, the likelihood that the patriarchy will be forgotten in favor of infighting approaches 1.

Tubman's Law: As a feminist thread goes on, the chances of some white woman comparing something to racism, slavery and the like becomes 1(Not kittiekatie's phrasing, but it is her law)

Tekanji's what about the mens law: In any discussion about women, feminism or the like, the probability of someone saying but what about the mens approaches 1.

The Faux Card Cred Law: Anyone disavowing their various prejudices by using the phrase "I'm not anti-_____, I have _____ friends!" or some variant thereof will summarily lose the argument and be subjected to a vicious fishbeating by members of the group in question. Double fishbeatings will be enforced if the "faux-cred card" is utilized more than once in one argument.

Second, laws I believe I made up or modifications of base laws.

The law of the veil- as the time a white feminist's blog has existed goes on, the likelyhood that someone(or the blogger herself) will use the line "OMG, do you want us to wear a burqa" or use the burqa as a visual sign of oppression approaches 1.

The bandwagon law- Everyone ever wants to be called a feminist, even pro life lifestyle Goreans who think that a woman's place is in the home, and that the downfall of civilization has been brought about by feminists who have hairy legs and fuck around too much.

The out damned spot! law- Someone will always say "OMG! someone called me not a feminist" even if noone was talking about that at all. That person will be beaten with a nice large feminist of color anthology like Making Face, Making Soul.

The OMG Oppreshun!!! law- As the percentage of the female population doing a certain beauty ritual goes up, so does the likelyhood that some lady will break her arm patting herself on the back because she stood up to the oppressive feminists who won't let her do whatever beauty ritual 99% of women in her country(OK, it's usually america) do.

Nubian's Law(named after her for no good reason): No matter how racist something that a woman of color blogger has blogged about is, there will be white people commenting that that wasn't racist at all.

The pleasure law: Pleasure will always be defined as a bunch of girly crap.

The Cosmo Girl law: If any jokes, snark or witty turns of phrase are used to attack sexism, someone will complain lest the lack of complete and total seriousness scares off some girl who is in fact perfectly fine with her own lack of political consciousness.

Twisty's rule(also named after a blogger): Billion dollar industries, years of cultural indoctrination, and the way society is structured has nothing on what one blogger says on the internet.

The real women have curves law: Whenever a discussion about eating disorders, dieting or weight occurs, the probability that someone will mention that obesity is a KILLER!!! approaches 1

Faux Cred Card, Feminism Corrallary: If anyone claims to have a get out of the patriarchy free card (i.e. My decisions have nothing to do with the majority culture because I do BDSM/my Milton is a perfect saint/I live in a sealed bubble) will have to wear a sports corset, a hobble skirt, and stiletto heels while running a mile and jumping over railroad tracks.

The first sex law: If some sexual act is mentioned, the possibility of someone talking about their experience of it in graphic detail approaches 1.

Amazingness occurs.
Houston janitors get a new contract Also, Amp makes links about the Oaxaca protests, and shannon wonders how the creation of a parallel leftist goverment in Mexico will affect this if it does at all, since shannon has no idea about Mexico's system or the support of this guy, although I heard something about protests in Mexico City in favor? Oh so confused.
Brownfemi shows pictures of brave Mexican women resisting rape, murder and oppression. These women don't need to be 'saved' by us imperialists up north or held by the hand and told that bloggers approve of their choice of footwear. They are doing for themselves.

And on the other side, anorexia kills a model. Anorexia is a culture bound disorder. This does not make it any better for the victims.

Monday, November 20, 2006

The goons at somethingawful spend all their time looking at terrible,terrible websites. People who put their kids in child pageants are declared tools of the patriarchy. Why? Ok, look at this creepy ass photo:

Now, that's just creepy. (here's a whole website devoted to creepiness, and here's a film about creepy crazy child pageants on youtube.) This sort of thing is why I don't hold off on declaring things to be tools of the patriarchy. I mean seriously, I don't expect pageant mothers to read this blog and because I didn't call them tools of the patriarchy, lead a feminist revolution.

Even though women are oppressed, that doesn't stop a great many of them from looking around and saying "hey, I'm pretty happy with stuff the way things are". They aren't being forced to live shallow lives of dressing their kids in dumb outfits that cost too much just to spite the evil strawfeminist * who threatens to outlaw lipstick and blowjobs if they don't sacrifice their daughters to the pageant gods. No, their priority simply isn't the liberation of women. Their priorities are elsewhere. So why try to make a movement for liberation a movement for fun to accommodate these types?

*Maybe my foundations teacher is the strawfeminist. She wears sensible shoes, and by facial expression, I don't think she thinks shopping, but for fun stuff, not boring stuff! is a job.
1221 words. Very pleased.

I found my paper! The combined word count is now 747(you see, I pasted the good bits of the old one together with my new one).

Protesters are sexually harrassed in Houston. This story really shows the seedy underbelly of our society. Should we all look for a fund that gives out cellphones w/ cameras and little camcorders to protestors?

Our fun feminist friends may want to call off that google search! The Wii has brought peace and harmony to the world.
I'm going to wank. There may be triggers for the pro ana and the eating disordered. For god's sake, being anorexic isn't something you aspire to to be cool! It's a deadly mental illness! People of normal weight aren't all jealous of folks who have deadly illnesses! Many of us want you to get help so you can fucking live. And yea, and if you ask a question in a fucking public community, people will answer it, dumbass. If you don't have enough fat, your periods will be screwy. You can save yourself a lot of wank by using fucking google if you don't want others to fucking comment on your fucking public posts on the internet.

Saturday, November 18, 2006

I hope my paper wasn't eaten, but I only got up to like 750 and was full of lose and fail. Here's a depressing link about Africa.
669 words in. Uh..see my amazon wishlist and tremble. And if you spot the real reason I have lists up at thisnext, you get a prize.
WTF? Is it me or is this really fucked up? Like, what's going on? Dang, those strikers are really putting themselves in danger. That's daring to put yourself on the line for the lives of your community and kids.

People who live in Houston should collect food for the food drive for the janitors.

Life lessons for men: just because women are guilty of crimes against fashion doesn't mean you should sexually assault them. Here's a dumb dumb story about prostitution. Instead of targeting the men who are buying the services of prostitutes, they are mad because streetwalkers are near the children. Great strategy,folks, just great. Because none of the streetwalkers are anybody's mama, of course.
World have your say today is about the taser incident and burkas.

More about sex,sex,sex. You know what? Stop touching the god damn strippers. How would you like it if someone came up to you at your workplace and grabbed your crotch? We wouldn't even have to be having this discussion if some assholes didn't decide to ruin stripping for everyone by touching the damn strippers. And if you try to jam a finger in a stripper's vagina, you should go to jail. Straight to jail. Don't pass go, don't complain about PC hairy legged feminists.

Also: Don't give your nasty ass crap to the poor. They don't want it. If you give half eaten food to the food pantry, you need to have your ass kicked.
"Most work is exploitation, but most work is not prostitution. Prostitution is prostitution, a very specific type of exploitation wholly unlike my other miserable jobs scooping hummus at the cafe, ringing up beef jerky at the corner store, scheduling perms at the hair salon, mindlessly xeroxing business papers at the copy shop"- Michelle Tea in her illustrated novel Rent Girl.

Roseanne on Larry King Live: We should talk about the workng class. Also, don't they know that lifting up one's shirt for free is just wrong(roseanne on GGW) I'd like to say that you all should give dolls of all colors to toys for tots. Give black dolls, asian dolls, hispanic dolls(get a cheap dora off ebay or something).
I was walking around sex and race, and this yeloson person found this awesome post about political correctness. I decided to link it to help in clueification.

Monday, November 13, 2006

Because little girls would never be interested in Harvest Moon or Lego Star Wars~! Even when I was a little girl, I never played god damn Barbie games. It was Zelda, Ninja Turtles and Final Fantasy all the way! But now I really want a DS. Cooking Mama looks so good!

Tip for this holiday season: don't get carried away with the frenzy over 'hot' toys. Use common sense. If an ebay seller has 100 toys that it is really hard to get, what are the odds of you actually getting that toy? Common sense will save you a lot of grief this Christmas. Not to mention, no kid has to have a certain toy. No one was ever damaged for life because they had to play with a regular old Elmo doll you got off ebay for ten bucks.
I decided not to do stuff for the third day in a row. Heart writes this long post and all I get out of it is that it's nice to plant trees. You all shouldn't wear leather jackets to plant trees as once I fell down a hill while trying to plant trees and oh the cleaning bill was horrid.
Bwa ha ha!




She's so very dedicated to this man that she's making herself miserable for him and bitching about it online? What a pillar of devotion and strength.




Perhaps this is just me being closed-minded and stereotype-driven, but don't people who join communities dedicated to extreme sexual lifestyles get over the whole high-school "ew, icky, slut!" thing?

Sunday, November 12, 2006

Brownfemi has an interesting comment.

Frowner–I just wanted to clarify, I didn’t mean to be coy–that is, I didn’t mean to do a “you guess why we’re angry, cuz I’m not gonna tell you!” I think I might’ve came off that way–

but yeah, I know it’s hard to work on shit–especially placing yourself within the context of a movement–negotiating where you stand is really difficult some times–I mean, for example, many times, native peoples get really really angry at Mexican/chican@s because we try to claim our indigenous roots–but we don’t do it in a way that is helpful and many times is quite harmful to what native peoples are doing. but yet, do we not have the right to claim our past? is your movement more important than ours? Is your right to exist and have a history your important than our right to exist and have a history?

I think in the case of lipsitck/blow job thing–it’s a very similiar thing. that is what is important to lots of white women, but they don’t have any clue that 1. they have power on this internet thing and 2. there are women of color reading and paying attention (at least temporarily) to what they are doing and saying. so do these women have any obligation at all to cover anything outside of their own interests? Especailly when whenever some blogger of color (especially a woman of color) points something out to them, they immediatly go on the attack mode and start in with “When we fight, the patriarchy WINS, why can’t we just get along, your my sister!!!!” Everybody wants to be our sister when we’re angry, but when we don’t say anything, lipstick and blow jobs are good enough for everybody. you know?

It’s the same thing with the porn situation–porn is the one place where it’s systematically “ok” for white women to be abused–whether it’s symbollically through the action or the workers conditions or whatever. Systemactially, it’s culturally and socially and legally “ok” for white women to be treated as they are in porn. is there any wonder, then, that feminism has centered it’s entire debate around structural violence against women on porn? Is it any wonder, then, that even as women of color scream from the roof tops that violence of the nation/state and economic structures and environmental degredation are reeking havoc on our communities and all white women can talk about is porn porn porn and sucking dick and the patriarchy? It’s one of those closeted underlying quite forms of racism to insist that all evil must stem from porn–especially when you look at how women of color, fat women, disabled women, mother’s etc are generally fetishized within the porn world–such that any type of abuse or violence that may stem from porn against us is yet again, hidden and silenced because most people don’t consider that fat women or women of color or disabled women would be 1. sexualized in the way porn requires or 2. that the way we are sexualized is different and often times much more harmful than the way white thin pretty women are sexualized through traditional porn. you know?

porn, lipstick, blow jobs–all of those thing center white able-bodied, straight women in the context of feminism, and so it’s not so much that I don’t think a discussion on porn is important or necessary, but rather that the way it is discussed is on terms where it’s very often, you’re either with us or against us–and I refuse both positions. I think life is more complicated than that, and any good movement will allow for that complication.

Brownfemi has some good ideas, but I'd like to go off in a completely unrelated direction. The problem I have with white women and lipstick and blowjobs is how they center their feminism around it. It's not just "Well, I have a hobby, and my hobby is wearing lipstick while giving blowjobs, and so now let's all collect cell phones for the women's shelter". It's "Oh noes! Somebody I don't know from three states away doesn't like my fashion choices! How can I ever survive? Isn't feminism about supporting women!?".

The thing is that women are a huge fucking group. We're more than half of the world's population. Not everything a woman does can be supported by every woman. For example, I really hate women who spend their whole public careers complaining about how women who have jobs are bad mothers. Also, women who talk about how girls who have been peed on by grown ass men are just fast are just wrong in my eyes.

Not to mention, there's a huge ass difference between supporting women in important ways, such as noting that no, it's not your fault that that asshole raped you, yes, I'll take care of your kid for you so that you can get an education, and yea, I'll demonstrate so you can get some health care, and supporting women in dumb ways like of course, I think your choice of footwear is great!, I love your pubic hair style!, and whatever you're doing now is perfectly feminist!

The idea that feminism is about your freedom to do exactly what you were going to do anyway is pretty limited. I'll use an ancedote to explain why I think this way. This girl in my class decided to talk about the high cost of manicures nowadays. The truth of the matter is this woman doesn't need a social movement to get a manicure. Her manicure needs will be provided for under the current system.

This is in sharp contrast to janitors who don't have health insurance, which puts their lives and the lives of their families in danger. Under the current system, they aren't getting their needs met. So why are we focusing on people who have their needs met?

Not to mention, the way some folks think people get into feminism is all skewed. They think women are all like "I did want childcare and health insurance for my kids but then I noticed that some feminists don't shave their legs, so I'm ok with my crappy lot in life now!" But heck, most of the women in my family don't even shave their legs!

Heck, if all they had to worry about in life was that some lady across the country didn't like their lack of leg hair, they'd be singing for joy. Heck, if all they had to worry about is that some lady across the country thinks blowjobs are gross, they'd be wondering if they were in heaven.

People in my family have to deal with folks fighting in the schoolhouse, pregnant teens who haven't eaten, molested infants at the daycare, children acting sexually inappropiate in class, and on and on.

If we could help them deal with that, they'd be all for feminism. They don't care about how empowerful we are in our sports corsets.
Brownfemi covers a janitors' strike. Unrelated, maybe you'd like to volunteer to teach undereducated adults and immigrants to read? I did project shine when I was in college and it was a good program. In Memphis, you can help with the Literacy Council. I'd like to suggest that donating books to local libraries would be a good use of energy.

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Brown Girl Rab Fish(ok, that's not the title of her blog) has good poems on it. At least someone else is tired. I was able to function today, but as I did yesterday I ended up taking a nap.
I heard my grandma had to call the police because of suspicions that a small baby was molested. Anyone who molests a baby is a tool of the patriarchy and also might need to be tortured by supernatural beings.

Women of Color Beyonce and Eva Longoria are going to play lesbians. Writer of write up focuses on male fantasies that have nothing to do with lesbians at all.
Laziness is pasted on, yay. And then spotted elephant explains why fighting through the pain is good. But today I think I will dedicate to goofing off.
Arguments about porn occur. In the case of erotica, i.e. written porn, if you have self lubing assholes in your story(or even worse blood as lube) or you think that rape to marriage is ok because it's got two guys, well, that's just wrong.

Also, hentai games are pure evil.

I'm not an expert on transgendered people, but is it me or maybe tonight's Grey's Anatomy is maybe a little bit sensational or less than favorable?
Littledrummrboy makes an icon:

About blogging, it seems that bloggers broke the story about the sexual assaults on the Eid. Women are now rallying against sexual assault.
But first, just to be clear--it never ceases to amaze me that I have to say this, but evidently I do--if you find the concept of food addiction useful, or you want to go to OA, I am not here to tell you you can't. Seriously, where would I get that kind of power, to prevent you from believing or doing something? It's not as if I'm going to lead the radical feminist army over to your house to cleanse your mind of antifeminist thoughts, confiscate your empowerful high heels and thong panties, and hold you down until your armpit hair grows in. I'd love it if everyone could give up the mythology of radical feminists as some kind of irresistible force for censorship and mind control. All I'm doing is stating my opinion, just like any other blogger (or any other human being). If someone stating an opinion contrary to yours is so threatening to you, I suggest you take a long hard look at exactly where and when you abandoned your capacity for independent thought and why you think I'm responsible for that.

This lady is full of win.

I know perfectly well that desires and cravings for food can feel really strong, can feel like they are overwhelming and controlling us, but to grab a little piece of wisdom straight from "the program," feelings aren't facts. Just because we feel like we can't resist eating a particular food doesn't mean we really can't (and certainly doesn't give us any information about why we shouldn't). As Julia Penelope says, "...appealing to feelings is one way of resisting change." "I just feel that way" is an argument for nothing except doing what you want (or in this case, NOT doing what you want) without examining the way patriarchy shapes all our beliefs and desires.

I'm not sure about whether compulsive eaters can resist or not, but what she said reminded me of a connection I made while I was reading Making Face, Making Soul. I tend to resist the idea that feminism is about making people feel good because the whole emphasis on feelings sort of echoes white resistance to anti racism. The focus is always on how if we say anything, a white person's feeling will be hurt, and apparently the world will fall apart if a white person ever feels bad.

I mean, when brownfemi talks about women walking with machetes and their kids on their hips, I somehow don't get the impression that they are walking that way to have fun. I may be a privileged first worlder, but I get the impression that women in the third world are working hard against sexual assault, against women being lashed for being raped, against dirty water, against a lack of education for girls, against a whole lot of stuff that isn't about just having a big party all the time.
